24/7 Emergency Care, Serving Our Community

At Altus Emergency Centers, we treat everything from minor to major injuries and conditions.

Stand-alone emergency care centers can diagnose and treat any type of illness or injury regardless of their severity with the added bonus of little to no wait times. Our emergency care facilities are equipped with emergency care physicians and nurses with expertise in a wide range of medical disciplines, and have advanced diagnostic equipment including x-rays, ultrasounds, CT Scans, and full-service laboratories at our disposal.


We welcome all private insurance plans.

Altus Emergency Centers is a licensed Freestanding Emergency Medical Care Facility; we function just like a hospital-based emergency room, and we charge rates comparable to a hospital emergency room and may charge a facility fee. This facility (or a physician providing medical care at this facility) is an out-of-network provider for the patient’s health benefit plan provider network. While we are an out-of-network facility, all insurance carriers are required by State and Federal law to pay in-network benefits for any member needing emergency medical treatment. The state of Texas empowers you to use a prudent layperson standard when considering what constitutes an emergency.

By taking the time to review your insurance policy, you will find out your co-pay and if you have deductibles, co-insurance, or anything else that might fall under your responsibility. This will help you make educated decisions when seeking medical care.

Altus Emergency Centers shall provide to each patient, without regard to the individual’s ability to pay, an appropriate medical screening, examination, and stabilization within the facility’s capability, including ancillary services routinely available to the facility to determine whether an emergency medical condition exists and any necessary stabilizing treatment.

  • Texas Insurance law states that if a condition is deemed a medical emergency, insurance will pay in accordance with a plan’s benefits for the services at the in-network benefit level, but not all emergency room services are medical emergencies. Altus Emergency Centers will work on your behalf with appeals to your insurance company to maximize your well-deserved benefits.
